President Obama To Appoint Harris Corporation CEO To The National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee

Stocks in this article: HRS

Harris Corporation (NYSE: HRS), an international communications and information technology company, announced that President Barack Obama intends to appoint Harris President and Chief Executive Officer William M. Brown to the National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee (NSTAC).

Brown will be one of 30 chief executives on the committee, which develops recommendations to assure vital telecommunications links through any event or crisis, and to help the U.S. Government maintain a reliable, secure, and resilient national communications posture. Committee members represent major telecommunications companies, network service providers, information technology, finance and aerospace companies.

For more than 30 years, the NSTAC has addressed a wide range of policy and technical issues regarding communications, information systems, information assurance, critical infrastructure protection, and other national security and emergency preparedness (NS/EP) communications concerns. In recent years, the government, with the support of the NSTAC, addressed new NS/EP challenges caused by several primary factors: the convergence of traditional and broadband networks; the changing global threat environment; and the continuing global expansion of both provider and user communities.

"It is an honor to be appointed by the President to serve on this important advisory committee," said Brown. "Reliable and secure communications plays a critical role in our society. I hope to bring the breadth of Harris Corporation's expertise in assured communications and information technology to issues affecting national security and our Nation's emergency preparedness."

Brown was appointed president and chief executive officer of Harris in November 2011. Before joining the Harris Corporation, he was senior vice president for Corporate Strategy and Development at the United Technologies Corporation (UTC). Brown joined UTC in 1997, prior to which he was a senior engagement manager at McKinsey and Company. He began his career at Air Products and Chemicals, Inc., where he worked as a project engineer. Brown serves on the Board of the Fire Department of New York Foundation and the Florida Polytechnic Board of Trustees. He received a B.S. and an M.S. from Villanova University, and an M.B.A. from the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania.
